Man Dies After Falling Through Skylight In Canton

CANTON, Mass. (AP) — Police say a man who fell through a skylight on a building's roof has died.

Canton police say the man was one of two people on the roof assessing snow removal needs when he walked across a skylight covered by snow and fell about 40 feet to the ground.

It happened just before 5 p.m. Sunday.

The man, who was not identified, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police say on Saturday a woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries when she fell from the roof of her home while clearing snow.
